Bulent has a passion for making great synths and it really shows in his work...
SynthMaster 2 is an indispensable workhorse for me after many years of use...
Recently, I started adding SM One to the mix and I'm embarassed that it has been sitting idle for so long, because this synth sounds great...
It has a lot of the goodness of SM 2 in a stripped down format but it is still very powerful, with each section having plenty of options...
The oscillators can load single cycle or WT, and it has two sub oscillators for AM, FM and PM etc...
The filters, modulation and effects sections are all very good and it's easy to program this synth because it's laid out so logically ..
One of the things I like about Bulent's synths is that you can save the modules as presets which makes it a dream to assemble your own programs out of the individual presets...
The best part about SM One is the sound and just like SM 2, it sounds beautiful...
Put all of the elements together and it can be anything you want - from analog to digital...
Some peeps tend to look down at the KV331synths and think that because of their lower price point, that they must be inferior to many of the other synths available...
But make no mistake...
SM One and SM 2 are killer synths that are as good as anything out there and the're easy to program and sound great...
And that folks, is the bottom line...
4.5 Stars for SM One and a gazillion stars for SM 2.Read Review

I could give five stars --- but, in the iOS version, I cannot get SM to sync to MIDI clock. I know I'm sending MIDI clock to my interface - I've tried a couple - but cannot get them to sync and percolate together. What am I missing?Read Review

One of the best sounding and most flexible synthesizer plugins, which I know.
Almost too many features, but of course you do not need to use them all, alone the existing presets sound very good. I've also bought some more vintage based expansions, which also up to now did not disappoint me.
More than fair price for the quality and features.Read Review

I absolutely love this synth. I am always drawn to it when looking for a sound or to design a sound. I love the layout, sound, and flexibility. It is quite deep. It allows .WAV file imports, but the only thing is it missing imo is a rompler library with a real Piano and Strings. I know this isn't the aim of the product so I am not disappointed, but if they added this in the future it might be the only thing I ever used.
I think the effects section is great as well, the only thing I would hope for is a ValhallaShimmer-esque reverb.
I like that you can use the Synth as an FX unit as well, but it would be helpful if they had a different GUI for the FX only version. I understand that would probably be a tremendous amount of work, but it would really set it apart and make the FX version less cluttered and more usable.
If you want to buy a virtual synth, I would put this HIGH on my list. I own Diva, Zebra, Lush 101, Korg, and the whole NI suite, but I always come back to Synthmaster and Synthmaster One.
